Tei-An

Grilled Ishimochi

Teiichi Sakurai, owner and chef at Tei-An, is a man of few words. So is his recipe for the restaurant’s grilled ishimochi. The preparation is simple: the sun-dried whole fish is imported from Japan. At Tei-An, it is grilled. The resulting soft, almost sweet-tasting, meat contrasts nicely with daikon radish and lime. $17.
